Emily Speed

Emily Speed's interests lie in the relationship between people and buildings and her work explores the body and its relationship to architecture. Speed says, "The idea of shelter and the inhabitant is at the core of much of my work; how a person is shaped by the buildings they have occupied and how a person occupies their own psychological space."

Emily Speed studied BA (Hons) Drawing & Painting at Edinburgh College of Art (1997 – 2001) before completing an MA in Fine Art: Drawing at University of the Arts London: Wimbledon College of Art (2005-2006). In 2013 she exhibited at Castlefield Gallery in Manchester alongside Hayley Newman and was shortlisted for the Northern Art Prize. Then in October 2014, Speed was resident at the British School at Rome as the Derek Hill Foundation Scholar (drawing). In 2016 she had solo exhibitions at TRUCK, Calgary and presented a major new commission at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts, Texas. Recent exhibitions include Plymouth Art Centre, Oredaria Gallery, Rome; Laumeier Sculpture Park, St Louis, USA; Danielle Arnaud Gallery, London; Bluecoat, Liverpool; Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne, Switzerland.
